The purpose of this grant is to provide funding to the Opportunities Industrialized Center, Inc. (OIC) to enhance its Integrated Training Academy. The academy will address existing skill gaps and disparities in workforce training in the Rocky Mount area. Workforce pathway programs will be offered in the following areas: health occupations, advanced manufacturing, and transportation and construction trades. OIC will provide training to at-risk individuals ages 16-35. Edgecombe County and local industries will benefit as they will have access to a larger pool of career-ready individuals. Golden LEAF funds will be used for contract instructors and a program coordinator position, equipment, supplies, tools, and travel.
